"We all fear death and question our place in the universe. The artist's job is not to subcome to dispair, but to find an antidote for the emptiness of existance." -Gertrude Stein in the movie Midnight In Paris.

She sat in a window
looking into the house.
A smile on her face
and a thought in her eyes.

Her smile never fading
and her skin porcelain white.
Her eyes filled with tears
but she could not cry.

Her thoughts as fragile as she
and she saw everything she could see.
She wanted to scream
but nobody would hear.

She was enclosed in a glass case
and wanted to get out,
but as hard as she tried
she wouldn't get far.

Until one day she tried real hard,
she fell to the ground and never went back.

A friend had asked me to write her a poem and I just happened to be looking at my little porcelain Dresden doll that somebody has once gifted me thinking I liked them, when really all my life they freaked me out. So staring at this little doll the poem was written.
